Welcome to the Love is in the Air Blog Hop. Hosted be ME and featuring the fabulous stamps by Samantha Peyton of SP & Company. This is the very first stop on the hop, so if you're ready to get started - you're in the right place :)
Hello everyone! I am SO excited today. There is a prize at EVERY stop on the hop - and the grand prize could be chosen from any of the blogs - which is any 2 SP & Company sets of your choice!
Today we are inspiring you with projects that have a love theme. Valentine's, wedding, or anniversary type projects. SP & Company has some new stamps out perfect for those types of occasions.
Be sure and hit all 7 stops, leaving comments to be entered to win prizes along the way. After you gather all your inspiration come right back here and enter the challenge at the end of this post for yet ANOTHER chance to win!
So, that's the hop basics - onto my projects! I went ahead and made 2 for you today.
This first one is a mailbox from the Target $1 spot that I embellished with a whole bunch of SP & Company stamps.
The sets I used for the front are:
Lovely Labels - which I added Fruit Punch Stickles to
I Love Love - for the word Love
Mix and Match Sentiments : Basics - to spell "This Valentine's Day"
The sets I used for the side are:
I Love Love - for the word on the flag and also the XOXOXO
Hearty Hearts Backgrounds - for the heart pattern on both sides of the paper
I also attached some cute pink ribbon to make the sides look a little more polished.
I also made a simple tag for you today using my Cricut along with my SP & Company Stamps.
I used the Sweethearts Cartridge
The frog is from page 42 - and is cut at 3.5 inches
The tag is from page 74 - and is cut at 5.5 inches
To embellish my froggie I used the Cuttlebug Folder Tiny Bubbles
I added some googly eyes, Gold Stickles for the crown, and drew a line to accent his mouth
I added a light blue strip of paper punched with Stampin' Up's Scallop Border Punch
I found the PERFECT sentiment for this little frog "Kiss Kiss" it's from Ultimate Sentiments I
So, whether you love to use your Cricut, or are more into stamping - or enjoy both like me you can do fabulous projects with SP & Company stamps :)
I am giving away Ultimate Sentiments I

I am issuing a challenge to you! There are 2 parts to it.
Create a project that has some type of love theme, wedding, anniversary, Valentine's, etc.
It also has to have something to do with wrapping a gift, or holding something like Valentine cards or candy. You can make a bag, a box, a tag, etc. You can alter an existing item or make something from scratch. There are a lot of possibilities here! No cards or scrapbook pages.
Here are the rules:
This must be a new project made for the challenge
If you are posting this from your blog say it was made for the challenge and link back to this blog
If you do not have a blog that is fine, use Photo Bucket, Flickr, or another hosting site
Follow the challenge guidelines for your project
When you have followed the above guidelines you can enter your project below for a chance to win...
You will have about 1 week to enter your project. The link collection tells you how much time is left before it closes. I will draw the winner the next day, at random. Have fun and good luck! I can't wait to see your fabulous creations :)
